Synopsis: ​It has been a year since Aoba Suzukaze started working at the Eagle Jump game company. In that time, she and her eccentric coworkers in the character design department have worked hard to release the company’s newest game: Fairies Story 3. With their latest title now complete, a new project must begin—starting with a contest to decide the character designs for the upcoming game. Through hard work, dedication, and some guidance from the previous character designer, Kou Yagami, Aoba wins the contest and begins her new role as lead character designer.

However, her new job is not an easy one. In addition to having extra work and longer hours, Aoba questions whether she is the right fit for the job. New Game!! continues as Aoba overcomes her inexperience with the help of her friends and coworkers, willing to face any challenge to make Eagle Jump’s newest creation, a cutesy game called Peco.

Should You Watch: If you loved the first season, you’ll really love this one, so yes!

General Comments: Our favorite game developers are back and boy were they missed. The Eagle Jump team returns with their unique personalities and hilarious hijinks, but with even more vigor. However, the comedy wasn’t the only thing they amped up, but the feels as well. Where the first season was more focused on comedy and getting to know the team, this season was focused on actual game making and the conflicts that come with it, therefore making it a more serious season. There was one moment in particular this season involving Aoba and a certain competition she was involved in that made my heart hurt as I could wholeheartedly relate to the struggle and her grief.

It wasn’t all serious however, and we also had several new characters to meet, though I will say perhaps at the cost of development for some of the veterans. There was more drama this season as well, but it was offset with the increase in romantic subplots. That’s not the focus of the show of course, but I can safely say that at least one of the favorite ships sailed and more are highly likely to in the future. Overall, the second season was even better than the first in several ways and I really hope we’ll get a third.

Should You Watch: If you like RomComs focused around the lives of gamers, yes!

General Comments: This anime was amazing in how funny it turned out to be. I watched it simply because it was going to feature gamers and seemed interesting, but it exceeded my initial expectations. It turned out to be the most hilarious show I’ve seen this season, with gold level comedic timing in the jokes and characters with very distinct personalities. Seeing those personalities interact is what makes it so funny. The constant references to games and the struggles of a gamer was so relatable to gamers and self-proclaimed nerds like myself, that it couldn’t help but be a hit among them. My only complaint is that the finale was a bit underwhelming and didn’t resolve certain plot points. I pray we’ll get a second season, because I’d love to see more of those gaming dorks and their awkward romantic adventures.

Should You Watch: If you love romance and comedy, for sure!

General Comments: This was the definition of short and sweet anime. At just 12 minutes an episode and in a 4-koma format, we got a series of skits featuring the various couples and their awkward interactions. It was simple, but executed well such that you could never be bored and would be left wanting more. Some couples were more successful than others at their aspiring romantic exploits, but there were none who you could dislike. I’d love to have another season or more, because it’s got the formula that gives it an easy longevity.

Isekai Shokudou

Genre Tags: Mystery, Comedy, Fantasy

Seasons/Episodes: 12

Synopsis: At the bottom floor of the building with a dog signboard, in the shopping district near the office street, there lies a cafeteria called “Youshoku no Nekoya,” that has an illustration of a cat on the door. It’s been open for fifty years and has satisfied various salarymen from nearby offices. Despite it being called a Western cuisine cafeteria, it also provides other varieties of menus. For the people of this certain world, it’s their one-and-only special cafeteria.

There is, however, one secret to “Nekoya.” The cafeteria is closed to the public every Saturday in order to make way for special guests. When a bell rings, customers from different places of birth and races appear who ask for mysterious and delicious dishes. They are actually the same dishes served to the salarymen, but these special guests find them to be more exotic than to what they are used to. As the cafeteria aims to serve masterpieces, it is usually referred as “Isekai Shokudou.”

Should You Watch: If you want a peaceful, easy going anime focusing on the love of food, yes.

General Comments: This was a surprisingly enjoyable show this season. It’s really simple, yet it never bored me. I loved meeting new and interesting characters each week and discovering the new dishes they’d come to love. It was a bit like the easy going counterpart of food wars, without the foodgasms and fierce competition. The characters were all great and the flow was well executed. The best advice I can give is, don’t watch when you’re hungry.

Should You Watch: If you want an interesting monster girl anime without a harem, yes!

General Comments: This show was an interesting one. It appeared to be a standard slice of life or girls club show, and it’s how it started, but there was always a darker tone hinted behind the scenes. A few episodes in, we could start to see why. It tackled some serious, deep and thought provoking themes under a moe kind of veil. It’s something I’ve rarely seen and although many people disliked the world building going on between the SoL moments, I found it to be one of the show’s most interesting aspects. The canon lesbian couple and the additional yuri ships of course only made me appreciate it that much more. It may not be for everyone, but if you don’t mind a little world building in your moe SoL anime, then give it a shot.
